They aren't allowed to encrypt PSB channels.

Thanks.
The main SD regional version of ITV in each area is not encrypted, additional versions for adjacent regions and AD versions are encrypted. The last scan data showed that the SDT had additional data added for STV AD. The data indicated that STV AD will be encrypted but that the pack codes hadn't been added at that point. That is the state usually seen when tests start, actual encryption follows shortly afterwards. At the time of the scan, STV AD hadn't been added to the NIT of VM's Scottish regions.

NIT data indicated that there has been frequency changes to networks on the Derby and Portsmouth headends, following on from those in other regions mentioned previously.

I feel so much better, knowing that.

Well, it's not about Amazon bidding for Premiership rights, so I would have thought it would have left you distraught...

Don’t get me wrong, jj, you come up with some interesting stuff. However, I always thought that NIT data related to Diane Abbott’s mathematical calculations.

Once again, NIT=Network Information Table and SDT=Service Description Table. I know that it's jargon but after it has already been repeated several times I would have thought that most of the followers of this thread would get the gist by now.

I'm sure that the majority of people do.

Interesting that VM are sticking to the letter of the law and encrypting what ITV regions that they can get away with scrambling, even though they have little to no value and aren't ordinarily available by the average cable subscriber, particularly when they will probably have to pay Nagra for it.

Do viewers in Scotland currently have to make do with ITV London AD like the rest of us?

Yes, Scotland gets ITV London AD on 853.
